Ribbon Cutting for Model Rehabbed Home
On Wednesday, June 28 at noon, Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith will take part in a ribbon cutting for an older home in the Pikesville community that has been rehabbed to accommodate the needs of the elderly and disabled. The home, renovated by Eric Anderson of USA Rehab, is located at 601 Ralston Ave. Mr. Smith will also announce the Accessible Homes for Seniors Grant/Loan program that is available to homeowners 55+ who wish to renovate their houses for current or future accessibility needs. This project is important to the County Executive’s belief in the importance of revitalizing older communities and also in keeping seniors in their neighborhoods. The County Executive will urge eligible homeowners throughout Baltimore County to apply for these loans, which are offered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Aging. Mr. Smith will be joined by Arnold Eppel, director of the Baltimore County Department of Aging; Gus Lester, president of the Carpenter’s Trade Union; and Terri Parrish, Chair of the Baltimore County Commission on Disabilities.
